Jimmy Carter

U.S. to Illinois: “Drop Dead”

On October 30, 1975, the “New York Daily News” had a headline in 3 inch bold print over a photograph of President Gerald R. Ford blaring: “FORD TO CITY:  DROP DEAD.”   That headline became one of the most famous political headlines in American history.  It encouraged the weak and discouraged conservative movement demoralized after several years of big spending by the nearly-impeached President Richard Nixon during his disastrous time in office.  President Ford had given a speech the day before the attention-getting newspaper headline in which he denied federal assistance in order to spare the big-spending New York City from bankruptcy.

Ironically, the RINO (Republican in Name Only) president, Gerald R. Ford, blamed the headline  --  which had cheered the conservative movement  --  for his losing the presidency to Jimmy Carter the next year after barely losing New York’s electoral votes.  Ford protested that he never said those words “drop dead.”  Ford whined years later, “It more than annoyed me because it wasn’t accurate.  It was very unfair.”

Jimmy Carter Said WHAT About Perry's Public Prayer? Video

It is disturbing, to see a grown man who boasted about teaching Sunday School while holding the highest office in the world, sit in front of a camera and with a straight face, knowingly lie. That is exactly what former President Jimmy Carter did while being interviewed by Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.

It all started because Texas Governor-Presidential Candidate Rick Perry called for a national day of humiliation, prayer and fasting for our country, inciting a gasp of outrage from a small but vocal minority in this country. Never has there been a greater need for God’s guidance and protection over America than today.

And to see a current presidential candidate invoking, by collective prayer, the presence of God in America, brought a sigh of relief and encouragment to the largest portion of the population of The United States.

The moment the call for public prayer in Texas was announced, the battle was on between those who rejoiced that a man in public office was sincerely seeking God’s guidance, and those in the minority who are determined to abolish prayer.

Pittsburgh’s Helen Trautman sent clips from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and the New York Times that bashed Gov. Perry for the prayer rally in Houston that was attended by 30,000 people from all over America.

The Gazette (8/9/11) headlined their scribble: “Perry’s Rally; A Presumptive Candidate Mixes Politics and Prayer.” No byline was given. Their Marxist inspired complaint was, “What about those who do NOT believe in God?”

Mr. Peanut Launches the Race Card

The jig is up, if only President Obama were white; then the opposition would willingly give in to the demands of the single most left wing fringe administration in recent history. All those pesky liberty loving Americans would fall in line, and blindly support the fundamental destruction of their beautiful homeland. Immigrants from former communist states would finally stop warning us of our impending doom. Yes, if only our young President were white, the once great nation of limited government and prosperity would voluntarily succumb to a Wall Street takeover, fat cat lobbyist and special interest groups writing policy, massive government interferences in the private sector, and massive government interference in our homes.
